Cambridge or Draw

We back up the relegation team of Cambridge to avoid defeat in this match. Cambridge won both games against Exeter played in 2022 – a 2-1 home league win in August and another 2-1 win in an FA Cup clash last April. Also, Exeter’s form of late had been pretty dismal – a single point earned from the last 4 rounds and no goals scored in the last 3. All this makes us pick this double chance outcome as our first Exeter vs Cambridge prediction.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both Exeter and Cambridge are low-scoring teams and that’s why we think the clash between them won’t produce more than 2 goals. Cambridge went under 2.5 total goals in 5 of their last 6 league outings. Exeter in 7 of the last 8 rounds.

On top of that, Exeter failed to even score a goal in any of their last 3 matches. That’s why we think this is our safest Exeter vs Cambridge prediction.

Under 1.5 Exeter Goals

Our final Exeter vs Cambridge prediction is that Exeter will fail to score more than 1 goal in the game. The Grecians have scored more than 1 goal only once in the last 8 rounds, they failed to even find the back of the net in their last 3 matches. At the same time, Cambridge might be struggling but they remain solid at the back – conceded more than 1 goal in only 2 of the last 6 rounds.

Exeter vs Cambridge Lineups and Team News

Exeter

Exeter have earned a single point from their last 4 games. They have won just once in the last 7 rounds too. All this ended any promotion hopes left.

Exeter will be without the suspended midfielder Harper for this game. Also, 3 players are still sidelined, among them key centre-back Diabate and star striker Brown. Another important centre-back Hartridge is a doubt, but he might be rushed back as if he’s to miss too the heart of the defence will be badly crippled.

Their defence has to be lauded with only four goals conceded in their last five matches. On the other hand, it is their attacking unit which has let them down of late with only three goals scored in this period. They are far behind their rivals, who are averaging at least two goals per game as we beckon on entering the final stretches of the game.

Cambridge

Cambridge lost 0-1 on their visit to Fleetwood on Tuesday. This game was right after the first win in the last 9 rounds was achieved last weekend when able to beat rivals Oxford 1-0 at home. The midweek defeat was a bit unfortunate as Cambridge were good value for a point, but conceded right at the death.

Due to the quick turnaround Cambridge’s squad might be challenged as the options for rotation are seriously restricted due to 8 players being sidelined. Among them the important Dunk (starting centre-back), May (key playmaker) and Kribbs (main striker).

Akin to Exeter, Cambridge has only scored three goals in their last five matches. At the other end of the pitch, their defence has shipped twice the number of goals. This is an improvement at their prior performances and needs help from the attacking department. The trio of Joe Ironside, Sam Smith and Harvey Knibbs needs to step up now or risk playing the next campaign in League Two.
